  • 17. What’s the best case scenario? Vision’s page is modeled after Aerotek’s: photos, videos, funny posts, and thoughtful polls. It’s engineered to take advantage of Facebook’sEdgeRank system, which rewards pages with exposure based on the quality, context, and recency of the content they create: Affinity Weight Time Decay Edge

  • 26. So how do we tweet?
  • 27. Your content is right: jobs. But the current RSS feed method needs rejuvenation. (Boring tweets are the worst tweets.*) *According to the definitive study on tweet content, “Who Gives a Tweet?”
  • 28. Similarly, we need to avoid old news, ―presence maintenance‖, and heavy use of #s and @s.
  • 29. What we do want is information, humor, and transparency. 1. Start by listening to your competitors 2. Tweet milestones (number of placements, new relationships, etc.) that illustrate how you help clients and consultants 3. Tease job listings with key attributes (work from home, Fortune 500, downtown Baltimore…) 4. Segment by job types 5. Tweet special offers and bonus programs periodically 6. Tweet market hiring trends that argue for contract work 7. Maybe even retweet jobs your competitors list but you don’t 8. Ask bonus winners, full-time placements, and others if you can congratulate them 9. Ask if you can tweet about employees (interesting) outside-of-work stories 10. Include a few humans (staffers with real photos)
  • 30. And there’s more to think about… more to explore 11. Assign more than one tweeter 12. Ask questions (that you and followers might really be interested in hearing answered) 13. Always explain or make clear what’s to be found at a link 14. Follow interesting people and retweet away 15. Tweet 3 or 4 times a day…at most; link to a job at least half the time 16. Don’t get caught up in apologizing every time something negative is tweeted, but your first instinct is to reply 17. Use twitter search to see if anyone’s talking about you 18. Ask how companies in your space could get better 19. Follow your clients and retweet their tweets that are relevant 20. Check out and others
  • 31. The key? Having a point of view, a personality—a vision. Bland, annoying updates won’t engage and connect with followers.
  • 32. And how does LinkedInfit in?
  • 33. As the Bullhorn Reach Study indicated—and as you already know—LinkedIn is hands-down the leader in the recruiting industry: Social Activity Metric Value LinkedIn’s rank among social media platforms Connections per recruiter 616 1 Connections added per week 18.5 1 Views per job posting 5.7x Facebook 1 Applications per job posting 8.8x Facebook 1
  • 34. Credibility is the coin of the realm in the professional setting of LinkedIn, so maintenance—by your recruiters— of businesslike profiles is critical. Discussion: Shouldn’t a professional profile on LinkedIn for Vision recruiters and employees be a mutual expectation, if not a condition of employment? It’s where you live.
  • 35. Unlike Twitter and Facebook, content creation is not the driver of LinkedIn success; connections are. Vision recruiters must relentlessly pursue the connections that drive success.
  • 36. Credibility and connections depend on effective maintenanceof the Vision brand (which includes your people). Thoroughness, timeliness, and accuracy* should be the values that guide all LinkedIn activity. *And be concise. Always.

  • 38. The content that is created should be highly relevant and useful, with a more serious tone than other networks. Posts and company updates should lead to exploration of the Vision page, not distract from it.
  • 39. Our recommendations
  • 40. Facebook Twitter LinkedIn At this time, graciously respectthe ―personal space‖ of users. Until maintenance costs and confidentiality dynamics shift, it remains an inefficient medium for recruiters and job seekers. Listen. Keep tweeting, but better. Twitter’s been shown to work as a recruiting tool. It’s the fastestgrowing network, with huge potential for your industry. LinkedIn is a recruiter’s best friend. From a company perspective, keep it thorough, professional, and timely. Remind employees they are the Vision brand!
